GET REAL!
Forms of Communication Against Losing One’s Sense of Reality Objectivity plays an important role in the (commercial) art system, since contemporary art finds itself in a constant state of latent insecurity. This is due to the inherent subjectivity of all aesthetic judgement, but is also due to the expected new-ness of a work of art. However, these days almost any shape can be attached to some…

SPARKS FROM THE INTERACTION BETWEEN ART AND POLITICS IN ZURICH
“When I was youn ger, I wanted to go fight with Che in the jungle, but now I’m just a standard leftie-liberal.” Jenny Holzer 1 Chapter 1: Art & Politics – Thank you for your time Of the concepts that had emerged from the discursive practices of artistic and political activism of the 1960s and 1980s, many sound archaic (while others remain all the more acute and useful). Critical voices…

TRUE OR FALSE
The top ten reasons for being misunderstood insights of a committee member Oliver Kielmayer Switzerland – just like many other central European countries – has quite a diverse system of art-sponsorship. The Swiss Cantons and big cities each have their own art collections that grow by means of regular purchases of works by local artists. Switzerland also gives out annual grants for studies…

NEWS FROM THE CORNER
New Self Confidence in Swiss Art That it is indeed possible to fully derail a recipe for success was made all too clear when, just two years ago, when the Swiss parliament heatedly debated a reduction of grant monies for the Swiss cultural foundation Pro Helvetia. An artwork had unleashed the cultural battle, that behind the scenes had already been a longstanding debate about structural reform…

FROM HEIDI HO TO THE GOLDEN AGE OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN SWITZERLAND... AND BACK?
Due to a lack of aristocrats, powerful cities and because of its strong iconoclastic protestant church, Switzerland has for hundreds of years been a very rural country and as regarding the fine arts, rather peripheral. In past and present - a small but beautiful place with a picture-postcard landscape of snow topped mountains, cheese, chocolate and Heidi, was an important inspiration to many…

FROM WESTERN SWITZERLAND WITH LOVE
Steven Parrino: Geneva, Lausanne, Neuchâtel, Fribourg 150 km from Zurich At the end of February, a new date had been penciled into the schedule; it would prove not only a good opportunity to meet many people and have interesting discussions, but above all a chance to be amazed at an exhibition of the Steve Parrino Collection Estate in Mamco (www.mamco.ch). It ranged from the early works of…
Lucerne’s Chapel Bridge Marion Ronca | u-sobě | 01.02.2006
LUCERNE’S CHAPEL BRIDGE
On the Construction and Reconstruction of a Landmark I cannot remember precisely when and on which occasion I first set foot onto Europe’s oldest and probably longest covered wooden bridge—the Lucerne chapel bridge. What I do recall very clearly though is feeling uneasy in the face of such history and heritage which was for one evoked by the numerous cobwebs as well as the historic-genealogical…

Interactive Recycling and Mark Divo Why Alternative Culture Is Being Eliminated in Zurich or Dear Swiss Artists, Welcome to Prague!!! While working on this issue I came across a glossy advertisement for Cabaret Voltaire Spiegelgasse 1, in Zurich and could not resist the temptation to write about it. Besides, I was going to do it anyway as I was impressed by the story told by Mark Divo, the…
A Better Life with Criticism Simone Schardt | u-sobě | 01.02.2006
A BETTER LIFE WITH CRITICISM
Following up the tradition of thinking in decades that we find in the latest history of art, it seems that the decade 2000-2010 is a period of reflection and criticism of the conditions in which art is done: Meta-criticism is born. However, the question of conditions in the art world is just one target - another target is the increasing influence of criticism when it comes to the market value of…
